Radio dramatisation of the classic play, set in a dug out on the western front in the hours before "the big push". Martin Jarvis plays Stanhope. Even though written in 1928, it remains hugely powerful. Highly recommended.

A senior East German official announces to the British his plan to defect, The message however comes via an intermediary, who is later found murdered before he could identify who the defector is. What the intermediary does say however is that the defector will bring with him the name of a double agent within the British ranks. What starts off appearing to be a John Le Carre clone turns into a different kind of tale, and the title unusually apt.
